This is a very small museum but then it's artifacts are minuscule. I found the ticket price worth it based on the novelty of gazing at works of art so small, and each one handmade. It took us a few minutes to find it, it was basically around the back of where the gps kept taking us to, so keep your eyes peeled.

To be honest was expecting this to be a slightly bigger museum. The items on show are very well created and you do need the magnifiers to see that majority of thins. The items with the microscopes are a lot easier to view than the ones with the hand held glasses. We only stayed in there for less than 15 minutes as wasn't crowded and could whiz through the items

When you enter the small museum, located in the area of the monastery, you have the impression that in that small room there would be only half a dozen things to see. That was our first mistake. There's not thousands of objects being exhibited, maybe only a hundred, but you will be amazed by any one of them. The second mistake is that we were expecting miniatures like small toys or model houses and so. Nope. What they mean miniature is REALLY miniaturized. You will see a fly with a tiny little scissor and other microscopic metal objects in its many hands. A metal car standing on a mosquito leg and other similar amazing things. So tiny that you will have to use either a magnifier or a microscope to see them. It worth the price.

We loved this little gem a lot! Sailing boat on the wing of a mosquito, swan lake on a poppy-seed, Pushkin portrait on a rice seed, train on a hair, camel caravan in the needle eye..... Looking through the magnifying lense we kept repeating: "oh my god!" Just as the lady arrived a few minutes after us :)
Entrance fee is 100 kc pp. It is 5 minutes walk to Loreta, 10 to Hradčanské námesti. Do not miss it!
